Paddle Board Bag - Alterations and Completion

Unhappy with the loose fit of the paddle board bag I engaged in some alterations.
Working in sections - rail, nose, rail, tail -  I separated the panel with the fin slot from the narrow side panel.  I then reduce the side panel by 1 1/2" from the tail to the mid point of the board.  From the mid point to the nose of the board the material removed from the side panel increased incrementally to a maximum of 5" at the nose.  The process more smoothly than I expected and I am now pleased with the fit of the bag on the board.
The entire project is documented in the album - Paddle Board Bag Project - summer 2012.  On to the next project, or perhaps it is time for a paddle?
